surface design inspiration
I found this old Staffordshire platter at a thrift shop yesterday and I'm pretty thrilled with it. I love these exotic fantasy plant motifs which sprang out of the contact English potters and designers had with Chinese porcelains. I too am inspired by Chinese porcelains, and I too allow my imagination to run in its own direction with that original inspiration. I'm back to the studio tomorrow, and I'm going to be working on some new designs for porcelain pendants, vases, and dessert plates, with wildly imaginative vaguely Chinese flora. By the way, if you want to see behind the scenes studio and process shots, sneak preview product shots, plus loads of visual inspiration and the occasional snap of my pug or something I'm eating, then follow me on Instagram @bronwynsimons.
